The final figure after reflection would look like Let’s see how we get it Explanation The incident ray OA reflects at point O Since Angle of Reflection = Angle of Incidence OO’ makes angle 30° with normal of first mirror Now, drawing Normal at O’ The two normals intersect at 90° angle And applying angle sum property in ΔOXO’ We get Angle of Incidence in 2nd mirror = 60° Applying law of reflection in 2nd mirror, We get the below figure
